“The best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Clean, great covered deck, outdoor showers, short walk to car. Sand is better than Atlantic Avenue or Amagansett options, though the boogie boarding is better at those spots.

“Outsiders need not come. Tourists stay away!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

We passed through the Hamptons today to check out the real estate and the scenery. We had heard such great things, but now we wonder how folks can even live or play here. The traffic is terrible. Bumper to bumper from Southampton to Montauk. On Monday! We finally ended up at the beach parking lot, confronted by yet another New Yorker demanding payment for parking. But in this case, there was no amount of money that we could pay, because we were from out of town! Needless to say, we did a quick U-turn and high-tailed it out of the Hamptons (which took another two hours to exit due to traffic).

The beach looked cold, shell-less, and steep. Kind of like the rest of the area.

“Best Beach in the Hamptons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Amazing wide beach area with deep soft sand. Concessions are open in the season and offer great burgers and sandwiches. Just a great family beach that never feels too crowded!
